Poetry Meets Plumbing: Teaching English in a Vocational Classroom.
Darvin, Jacqueline
English Journal, v89 n6 p59-64 Jul 2000
Describes the author's experiences teaching a contextualized (content-driven) English curriculum in a vocational school, surmising that if students write about things that truly interest them (their trade areas), then writing instruction will be contextual and therefore meaningful and effective. Discusses difficulties and rewards, the variety of attitudes taken by vocational teachers, and some successful team-teaching that has resulted. (SR)
